Type: Brief

Coverage: United States

Abstract:

In these comments, CLASP urges the Department of Health and Human Services to maintain a provision that gives states an incentive to spend more of their money than the minimum required to avoid penalty. CLASP strongly disagrees with HHSÂ’ claim that reduced cash assistance caseloads mean that there is less of a need for additional spending.
